Lawn Liberation

Just as spring break is beginning to reveal itself, so, too, are the lawns—six five weeks after Groundhog Day. Coincidence, conspiracy, or completely meaningless counting error? You decide, though it certainly hasn’t felt like winter the past couple weeks. Facilities is pulling back the tarps, right as it’s beginning to heat up—highs of 58 expected today, with temperatures potentially reaching 65 tomorrow!

    @Anonymous Why are those tarps put down in the first place?

      @Anonymous To protect the lawns from the snow.

        @Anonymous Actually, the grass will die every winter regardless of whether the tarps are there or not (in fact, if it isn’t all dead when the tarps go dow, the tarps hasten the process), so what is the point?

          @Anonymous Perhaps they prevent the lawns from becoming muddy pits?

          @Anonymous dunno if you’ve seen the untarped grass but that shit is greener than the dankest dank. pretty sure it worked exactly as planned compared to the brown shwag that was left unconvered.

      @Anonymous i always thought it was to prevent people from writing stuff in the snow. because if it did snow and people wrote stuff but there was a greyish tarp underneath, the stuff they write would be less visibile than if it was just grass underneath.

    @Captain Obvious The luscious verdure of the untarp-éd fields does seem to indicate some preservative property.
